1. poem

I have known no gods, didn't fear a storm,
Not afraid of a flame or an enemy' sword.
I have had no wealth, I have known no bridle,
Biting burns of sorrow I have despised.

Royal honor is load I must ever bear.
Otherwise - the scorn of nobles and serfs.
Silent were the trumpets and birds in the skies,
When I shared with him our passionate nights.

I have need'd no gods, like a wind I was free,
But there came a day unexpected for me.
I have not ever knelt, for my heart was wild.
Yet I kneel today - love is stronger than pride.
